Behind The Flavio Melchiorre Cover Of Art Nouveau

Flavio Melchiorre was the first artist I contacted about contributing work to the Fall issue of Art Nouveau. The Italian based artist had just emailed me his latest work. It blew me away of course. Here is a snippet of my interview with Flavio.

Art Nouveau Magazine: When did you know you were an artist?
Flavio Melchiorre: Am I an artist? Really? Thank you Kendrick, I thought I’d be crazy but it is just this! Seriously, i don’t know, but I remember that I drew since I was a child, I always loved carrying my thoughts on paper or other materials.

ANM: Would you say culture affects your design aesthetic?
FM: Yes, certainly! I’m a very curious and I love discovering new things (music, film, books, people, places ) maybe my ambient has a great impact on my work. I lives in a zone of Italy called “Abruzzo” know as the “Green heart of europe.” My home is far 10 minutes from the sea and 30 minutes from the mountain, a place full of colors of nature. Also my work experience has influenced my design aesthetic, mainly fashion industry.

ANM: Explain your design process.
FM: When I make my patterns, first I try to get carried instinctively drawing randomly, then I take a long time to create modular and color combinations. When I make figurative illustrations instead usually I know what I want to express, so I try to follow an idea even if I go very often to improve it during its development. Usually I make freehand drawing on wacom tablet using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator but also using traditional tools, like pencil and painting.

ANM: Let’s talk about your influences. Is Keith Haring an influence on your work?
FM: Everything that I live influences my work. I have a great photographic memory and all I see stays in my mind waiting to be unearthed during the creative process. Mainly two cultures have influenced my style, Street art and Pop Art even if the abstract expressionism has been the key element in my personal research. I love the work by Keith Haring and Jackson Pollock, but I think they have not influenced my style but simple inspired me!

Take a closer look at Flavio Melchiorre’s latest work below, brought to you exclusively by Art Nouveau Magazine. And read more of this interview in the Fall Issue of Art Nouveau which drops Sept 30 on An-Mag.com.

The-Socials: The September Issue

Mrs. Wintour on speed dial trying to get a glimpse of  reality, can she put Grace on the phone I definitely need some inspiration. Its that time of the season, fall/winter fashion, award shows and releases and Art Nouveau Mag is getting a taste of the September Issue pressure. To be “Young,Broke and Successful” in a realm made up of heavy hitters, our hustle mode is all the way turned up because we are no longer amateurs.

This September, Art Nouveau Magazine will be releasing its second printed issue titled “BOLD“. Art Nouveau is the voice of the new cultural/art movement and the statement being made this time around is just simply “BOLD“. The cool thing about this issue was the fact that I became more hands on, and look I got two covers to prove for it. I am Kendrick Daye’s Grace Coddington, lol.

Special thanks to designers Theary Sim of Youtheary Khmer & Shaka of Shaka King for allowing me to pull some fabulous pieces, for the cover shoot with singer Bilal and accessory designers/socialites Coco and Breezy. If you want to see what’s inside the BOLD issue, you just have to order you a copy when it drops September 30, because I’m not sharing.

Nouveau Music Fame Night At Slice in Atlanta, GA

Last Wednesday, Aug 4, Honey Hustle Entertainment hosted a FAME night at Slice in the Castleberry Hill area of celebrating Art Nouveau’s indie music label Nouveau Music. Nouveau Music artists Ben Carson, Jay Scott & Corinne Stevie performed material from their respective projects.

Resident rock star Ben Carson started the show with a performance of “Isabella” and “Wasted,” tracks from his upcoming EP Melodic Monster. Singer/Songwriter Jay Scott was up next with a performance of his single “Champions.” He then asked singer Nicole Alexandria to join him on his single “U Didn’t Care.” Nouveau Music’s first artist Corinne Stevie closed the show with a high energy performance of “I Feel,” from her upcoming album Amalgam and “Grace Jones” from the Noise Porn compilation album. Take a closer look of photos from that night.

John Coulter: “Super Pop!”-Satire, Abstract & Praise For Pop

In conjunction with the release of Art Nouveau Magazine’s summer issue, stylish curator Kendrick Daye has gathered artists near and far around the topic of Pop. With Pop art’s origins in the 1950’s young artists today have decades worth of mass media to choose from satire, abstract, and praise through art.

These diverse artists take a fresh look at the world of popular media. Which today provides an infinite onslaught of inspiration to pick apart, most of which is no longer delivered directly to doors, like the newspaper strips Lichtenstein escorted uptown into the realm of painting. Contemporary artists bring concepts from worldly cartoons and online references into their fine arts.

The eclectic Mr. Daye brings together youthful, sophomore illustrator Faatimah Steven’s delicate drawings with veteran Jeffrey Pena’s uniquely bleach pale palette and Dominican American perspectives on pop culture. This circus of chic and pop also hosts collage artist John Morse’s recent work, as well as illustrators Barachan and Paper Frank.

Sometimes pop is better on t-shirts than walls, and others merely make light handed attempts to fanatically copy the commercial. Superstars Corinne and Sasha are two powerful artists that truly make this show shine. Sasha Tugolukova’s photo, magazine collages and detailed drawings are reminiscent of Goya’s etchings. Her psychological creatures, collages, and mix-ups bring humor to modern relationships, and take a complexly critical and dissecting look at how people voyeuristic-ally gaze at media. As fierce with a brush as she is with a mic, energetic Corinne Stevie breathes life into the strong female spirits she paints. Her juicy illustrations always find themselves on the finer side of art.

If your looking for something more than fluffy empty minded eye candy, head over to 112 Krog St this Thursday, for a pop explosion worth seeing. On August 5 at 7pm WM Turner Gallery in Atlanta will host an affordable feast for the eyes, created by a vibrant collection of artists immersed in the world of pop.

Art Nouveau & GreatEclectic Present “Art Stars” at Wonderroot in Atlanta, GA

On Friday, June 18, Art Nouveau Magazine and GreatEclectic presented “Art Stars” a show at WonderRoot which featured explosive performances by Jay Scott, Ben Carson, Richelle L. Brown, Land of the Free & Corinne Stevie. Nouveau Music’s newest artist Jay Scott started off the show with a short but sweet performance of his singles “Champions” and “Get 2 U” off his debut release Fear of Love. Fellow Nouveau Music artist Corinne Stevie spit a verse on the intro to “Champions.”

After Jay, Ben Carson brought down the house with a melody of songs off his EP Melodic Monster. He started with the “Melodic Monster (Intro)” and then tore into “Temptation” “Wasted” and two new songs “Isabella” and “Breaking Me Down.” Richelle L. Brown followed Ben with crowd shaking performances of “Super Funky Sounds,” “Swagga Black” and my favorite “Do Me Like That.”

The show closer featured performances by Corinne Stevie and Ka’Ra Kersey debuting music from
their collaborative EP Land of the Free. Corinne and Ka’Ra showed the crowd how good being free felt with amazing live renditions of “Our War 2 Freedom,” “Turn Off,” “Ne More,” and “Amazing” which featured a live flute solo by Taryn Crenshaw. By the end of the night everyone was feeling Amazing. Corinne then performed a new song from her upcoming album Amalgam called “I Feel.” And then had the entire crowd mouthing her lyrics to “Battleships” & “Grace Jones.”

It felt like Corinne’s night. Especially since her 23rd birthday was in 30 minutes. Host Guy Anthony presented Corinne with a birthday cake, sans candles of course and Jay Scott sung a sweet Happy Birthday to the self-proclaimed “Queen of the Underground,” a title she more than deserves. Watch the entire show below.
